Farm-Find Rescue! Plymouth Duster Big-Block Swap - Roadkill Ep. 40
 
23:42
On this episode we present a new Roadkill project car: the Crop Duster! It’s a 1970 Plymouth Duster that Freiburger forgot that he owned—a result of multiple trades with a buddy, and at least 5 years of neglect in the dirt of a grape farm. Once he was reminded of the car, and with a 440 Mopar big-block sitting on the shop floor (salvaged from the General Mayhem ’68 Charger), it was evident what needed to happen. Freiburger and Finnegan headed up to the farm run by Steve Dulcich, editor of Engine Masters magazine, to drag the Duster out of its moss-covered indignity and attempted to get the 440 in the car and running, driving, and doing smoky burnouts within five days. Along the way, the trio did engine upgrades, butchered some headers, built a homemade driveshaft, cobbled together a used exhaust system, did some halfhearted bodywork, and executed other mechanical feats the likes of which you’ve come to expect from Roadkill. Then it was off to the chassis dyno and the drag strip. Hate to break it to you, but the fail in this episode is minimal!

Winter Wagon Adventure: 1,000 Miles with a Few Missing Windows in a 1969 Buick - Roadkill Ep. 37
 
36:19
This episode of Roadkill is stuffed with speed parts donated by sponsors. That ought to make the install easy, right? Not when you decide to embark on a road trip from Phoenix, Arizona to Wichita, Kansas in January in a station wagon that’s missing a few windows and you want to install the parts along the way. Finnegan and Freiburger are at it again taking the hard way out by fixing up a 1969 Buick Wagon during a brutal winter road trip where they spent as much time hanging out in parking lots as they did hotels. Why? Well there was a kid in Kansas who wanted to trade them his Cavalier for their wagon and they didn’t have the heart to bring him the POS without churchin’ it up a bit prior to delivery. We don’t want to spoil the party, but it does look and sound a tad different before they reach Kansas.  Roadkill appears on the Motor Trend channel. http://www.youtube.com/motortrend Subscribe now to make sure you're in on all the action! http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=motortrend Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/RoadkillShow, http://facebook.com/motortrendmag & http://facebook.com/hotrodmag Twitter - http://twitter.com/motortrend & https://twitter.com/hotrodmagazine Google + - https://plus.google.com/+motortrend/posts Website - http://www.motortrend.com & http://www.hotrod.com

Draguar vs Randy Pobst! Roadkill Ep. 41
 
35:00
On this episode of Roadkill, hosts Mike Finnegan and David Freiburger revive Roadkill’s finest, boosted European and Japanese road machines: the “Draguar” 1973 Jag XJ12 with a supercharged 383ci Chevy small-block, and the “Rotsun” 1971 Datsun 240Z loaded with a Chevy 4.3L V6 and a turbo from a Ford Powerstroke diesel. With this kind of sophisticated equipment in play, there was only one logical story line: a shootout with Motor Trend’s top test driver, Randy Pobst–past winner of the 24 Hours of Daytona, plus dozens of other class wins and sports-car championships. With that kind of talent on board, it’s obvious that the guys will have to work hard to reduce Pobst to Roadkill’s level. But fear not, Roadkill fans, F&F have a plan to come out on top, and it’s as solid as Montezuma’s Revenge.

Roadkill's Best Dirt Car Yet! - Roadkill Ep. 71
 
32:51
What's the best way to build a great off-road car? Buy a used desert racer! That's exactly what happens in this episode of Roadkill powered by Dodge. With an urge to go rallycross racing, David Freiburger makes a sight-unseen purchase of a 1973 AMC Hornet that raced Baja in the '80s and finished the NORRA 1000 a couple of times before being parked circa 2012. When Mike Finnegan showed up, the guys found out the 360 AMC engine ran almost too good and, despite a thorough thrashing in the desert, the Hornet failed to fail! But is it able to outrun a Dodge minivan at a real rallycross event? You'll have to watch this episode of Roadkill to find out.

On this episode of Roadkill, HOT ROD's David Freiburger and Mike Finnegan hit the road with 500 of their friends for Drag Week.

The cry of “Thermoquad!” became famous in Roadkill episode 23, the one where the guys build the General Mayhem ’68 Dodge Charger using a 440 engine from a motorhome. Freiburger announced the Thermoquad as the only carburetor that punishes you for going to wide-open throttle. But what is a Thermoquad, really?

Nitrous Muscle Truck and Mini Bikes! - Roadkill Episode 18
 
23:37
A Vette-powered stepside truck. Nitrous oxide. Honda Trail 70s. Drag racing, and lots and lots of burnouts. Those are the basic plot points on this episode of Roadkill, as Freiburger and Finnegan have big fun with retro trail motorcycles on their way to revitalizing a long-neglected HOT ROD magazine project vehicle and road-tripping it to the eighth-mile drags. The vehicle is the Muscle Truck, a '74 Chevy shortbed stepside beater powered by an all-aluminum Corvette LS6. It also has a Turbo 400 transmission, a Gear Vendors under/overdrive, a Ford 9-inch with 5.13 gears, and the most wicked sounding exhaust ever. The goal is to get thrown out of the dragstrip for going too fast without a rollbar, then race the minibikes instead. How much nitrous can the Muscle Truck take?

1,800-Mile Beater Rally! - Roadkill Ep. 63
 
35:37
The 24 Hours of LeMons people have a new rally series, and Roadkill powered by Dodge and sponsored by Optima Batteries, Jegs, Lincoln Tech, EBC Brakes, Pioneer, CRC Auto, and Cooper Tires, is down! Instead of the normal LeMons endurance races for dirt-cheap cars, the LeMons Rally is a road rally -- a time/distance challenge with ridiculous sights and contests along the way. In this episode, Roadkill signs up for the LeMons Retreat From Moscow event, an 1,800-mile trip from Moscow, Pennsylvania, to Barber Motorsports Park in Alabama. The guys fly into town, buy a 1978 Lincoln Continental that’s been shortened from a four-door to a two-door (and formerly driven by an Elvis impersonator), and hit the snowy roads—with the expected Roadkill breakdowns, waffle wars, and off-road thrashing along the way.

1985 C4 Corvette-Kart vs. 2014 Lingenfelter C7! - Roadkill Ep. 35
 
29:39
On this episode of Roadkill, we hack the entire body off a C4 Corvette, cage it, and call it a race car! Freiburger and Finnegan fulfill a dream that began four-plus years ago when they first wrote the "Vette Hack" article for HOT ROD magazine, slicing 900 pounds of ugly fiberglass off of a 1985 Corvette to prove that it would handle better in the autocross. Less weight means more acceleration, better cornering, and better stopping. The idea is proven once again here as the guys add a 350-horsepower rat-rod engine, rebuild the trans, remove more weight, and make it rigid, safe, and stylish with a full rollcage. Next, they head into a shootout with a 2014 Corvette upgraded by Lingenfelter Performance Engineering with an Edelbrock blower, Kooks headers, and Corsa exhaust for a wicked-sounding 640 horsepower. And then, of course, there's the off-road mayhem. The Vette Kart rocks!

Wheelstanding Dump Truck! Stubby Bob’s Comeback - Roadkill Ep. 52
 
32:16
Bam! Stubby Bob goes big-time in this episode of Roadkill, presented by Dodge. In episode 44 of Roadkill, Mike Finnegan and David Freiburger took a 1950 Ford F6 dump truck and shortened the wheelbase to just 102 inches so it would look freaky-cool—but the truck wasn’t road trip–ready by the end of the show. This time, the truck is transformed by a supercharged big-block Chevy in the back with a Gearstar 4L80E transmission and a V-drive from a boat—all set up like a ’60s dragstrip exhibition wheelstander. But as the buildup continues, the big question is whether the weight balance and the massive dualie tires will really allow the truck to jerk the wheels off the pavement or not. The answer is some action you can’t miss. Roadkill is supported by Optima Batteries, CRC Industries, Lincoln Tech, Cooper Tire, Pioneer, and Jegs!

Dyno-Tuning the Draguar's 696 Horsepower Supercharged Small Block Chevy! - HOT ROD Unlimited Ep. 35
 
10:05
It's time for motor mayhem! On this episode of HOT ROD Unlimited we head to Westech Performance Group with Mike Finnegan to dyno-tune a new engine for the Draguar, the 1974 Jaguar XJ12 with a small-block Chevy under the hood that he and Freiburger bought for $1,000 and installed a supercharger onto in a parking lot during episode 7 of Roadkill. After the supercharger upgrade the guys road-tripped the dilapidated car from San Francisco to Sacramento for a drag race. With the summertime air temps hovering around 113 degrees, the worn out 350 overheated and Freiburger only managed to run a 15.30 ¼ mile ET at Sacramento Raceway. Looking for redemption, Freiburger ordered a new 383ci long block from Blueprint Engines, a definite upgrade over the old powerplant. Though the new longblock is only rated to 600hp it features forged pistons and rods and a forged crankshaft, which means that the guys can turn up the boost and make double the power of the old engine. The engine effortlessly made 650hp with 91 octane fuel in the tank but Finnegan was feelin' froggy so he added 118 octane race fuel and upped the boost to 15 psi in an attempt to make 700hp with the 383. Did the engine leave the dyno shop in one piece? Check out the video to see! The engine we used is a BluePrint Engines' 383 Long Block designed for power adders: http://www.summitracing.com/parts/mll-bp38316ct1 HOT ROD Unlimited appears every other Friday on the Motor Trend channel. http://www.youtube.com/motortrend Subscribe now to make sure you're in on all the action! http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=motortrend Facebook - http://facebook.com/motortrendmag & http://facebook.com/hotrodmag Twitter - http://twitter.com/motortrend Google+ - https://plus.google.com/1018679678590...

Junkyard-Rescue 1969 Mustang Mach 1! - Roadkill Ep. 66
 
37:44
An abandoned Mach 1 is a dream find! In this episode of Roadkill powered by Dodge, David Freiburger and Mike Finnegan head to Colorado Auto & Parts in Englewood, Colorado, and visit the Corns family—builders of the crazy radial-Cessna-powered 1939 Plymouth truck you’ve seen all over the Internet and in Roadkill magazine. Colorado Auto is a giant you-pull-it yard with heritage back to 1959—with a good stash of vintage cars that have been there for decades. One of them was a 1969 Ford Mustang Mach 1 that had been melting into the ground since 1980. But 37 years of neglect are not daunting to Roadkill, so the guys figure out how to get it running and driving. First, they’ve got to deal with 37 years of raccoon poop, which is just part of bringing the Disgustang into the Roadkill fleet of project cars.

1,300 Miles in the "Disgustang" Junkyard Mach 1! - Roadkill Ep. 73
 
34:25
One of the most popular Roadkill shows of 2017 was Episode 66, where David Freiburger and Mike Finnegan pulled a 1969 Ford Mustang Mach 1 out of Colorado Auto & Parts, a junkyard where the iconic muscle car had been sitting unused since 1980. Getting it running and driving for some big action was fun, but there was one thing lacking: the road trip. It’s time to fix that! The Mustang now known as the Disgustang sat ignored for many more months until the start of this episode where the guys planned to head north from California to the DirtFish Rally School nearly 1,300 miles away. This is Roadkill, so you can guess how far they made it before catastrophic failure—but you also know that Roadkill is virtually unstoppable, so eventually the trip becomes an epic drive with visits to gearhead destinations, including junkyards and an abandoned dragstrip.

On this episode of Dirt Every Day presented by Tire Rack, Fred Williams and Dave Chappelle pick up a military Unimog in Indiana with just a few days to get it to Memphis, Tennessee, for a big truck show. They think “No problem,” but are they in for a shock when they realize that the Unimog isn’t the dream on-road machine they hoped it would be. However, on roads is not the Dirt Every Day way, so they shift the big Mercedes military machine into low range and see what it can do on the muddy, wooded trails to determine if this is truly one of the greatest 4x4s ever made.

BMW E30 325i: Sorry M3, It’s the 325i’s Time to Shine! - Ignition Ep. 144
 
17:20
Back in the day, the E30 M3 dominated race tracks and rally courses around the world, but these days, it’s the BMW 325i that’s getting all the action. The 325i is raced in the SpecE30 racing series and is a favorite in ChumpCar and the 24 Hours of LeMons, as well as the go-to rear-drive car for the Team O’Neil Rally School. It also makes the far better daily driver. Why? Well, the M20 engine combines incredible sound and smoothness with unfailing reliability. And with the E30’s tough-as-nails chassis wrapped around it, it’s seriously fun and shockingly fast around a track. Watch as Motor Trend Features Editor Jason Cammisa takes a rally-prepped 325i into the woods and then onto New Hampshire's Club Motorsports’s road course before it’s even been paved. And then, Jason asks Randy Pobst to race his 325i Touring station wagon against the brand new, 320-hp 2016 BMW 340i with M-Sport and Track & Handling Packages. It’s 25 year old and has only about half the horsepower, but can Jason’s 325iT keep up with today's fastest non-M3 3-series around the Streets of Willow?

2016 Chevrolet SS Sedan: The New Benchmark Sport Sedan! - Ignition Ep. 152
 
14:19
Prepare yourself for some great engine sounds, then sit back and enjoy this episode of Ignition, presented by Tire Rack (http://www.tirerack.com). Enthusiasts still put the E39-chassis BMW M5 on a pedestal. It’s arguably the best sports sedan ever made, with the perfect mix of sport and luxury, refinement and involvement. The current M5 and M6 Gran Coupes are the only manual-transmission, rear-drive, V-8–powered sedans on the market—other than the oft-overlooked Chevrolet SS Sedan. With a 415hp LS3 small-block, six-speed manual transmission, and limited-slip diff, the Australia-built Chevy has all the right equipment. But does it have what it takes to unseat the benchmark E39? MOTOR TREND Senior Features Editor Jason Cammisa brings an M5 along to find out, and with the help of SCCA Hall of Fame racer Randy Pobst, we see if the SS can beat the M5 around The Streets of Willow racetrack.

2017 Fiat 124 Spider: Is the Fiata as Good as the Miata? - Ignition Ep. 160
 
14:47
On this episode of Ignition, presented by Tire Rack (http://www.tirerack.com), MOTOR TREND Senior Features Editor Jason Cammisa takes the Fiat 124 Spider (and an ND Miata) on some twisty roads to see how well it does and then races it against the Miata on a technical autocross course to see which is faster. The Spider is built by Mazda right on the same production line as the MX-5 Miata—so the logical thing to call it is a “Fiata.” Though the two roadsters look nothing alike, they’re mechanically identical, with the exception of what’s under the hood and how the suspension is tuned. In place of the high-tech Mazda SkyActiv 2.0L is Fiat’s MultiAir 1.4L turbo, familiar from the 500 Abarth. It’s a much heavier iron-block engine, which could spell bad news for the sports car’s handling, and with an SOHC valvetrain and port injection, it’s relatively old-tech. As you’ll see on this episode, the two cars offer very different driving experiences—leading Jason to wonder if either is actually better than the NC2 Miata that went out of production last year.

Once at the lake, they proceed to remove the engine from the truck and install it into the boat, hoping to do a little drag racing during the Tom Papp Memorial boating event. As usual things don't go as planned but the guys still manage to have fun involving an outhouse, shower curtains, scummy water and a trailer hitch.

U.S. Nationals to Drag Week: Adventure in a '67 Ford Wagon! - Roadkill Ep. 33
 
22:35
This time, Freiburger and Finnegan were out for a gearhead vacation, heading from the NHRA U.S. Nationals in Indy to HOT ROD Drag Week in Tulsa, but they had no car to drive. Posting on the Roadkill Facebook page was all it took to get fans to bring about a dozen cars for the guys to consider buying. After a struggle, they ended up letting a 5-year-old pick the car for them: a '67 Ford Country Sedan wagon. Next it was hanging on the starting line with mega-team owner Don Schumacher and other stars of the NHRA, a road trip that involved getting threatened by an old man with a steel pipe, and a final destination with the action of HOT ROD Drag Week. A past Roadkill co-star ended up winning that race overall, and you'll also watch as Larry Larson sets the record for the single quickest pass of all time for a street-legal vehicle.

Extreme Elco Engine Swap! - Roadkill Episode 4
 
21:49
On this episode of Roadkill, David Freiburger, Mike Finnegan and a carsick dog drive a '69 El Camino 500 miles from home (on seven cylinders) to change an engine in the parking lot of Summit Racing. The story goes that Finnegan's wife's grandfather bought this1969 Chevy El Camino brand new, and it's been passed down through the family, finally to her. It's a solid car, and the suspension has been hopped up, but the all-original 350 engine was smoking like a freight train. That didn't stop the guys from limping it from Los Angeles, California to Sparks, Nevada, where Summit Racing has a fully-stocked warehouse. Summit sells every speed part and replacement part on Earth, including the 420hp, 383ci crate engine, so the logic was that the guys would save time on the engine swap because they could walk right into the store instead of driving to a parts store multiple times, as they would have back home. So how long will it take a couple gearheads to change an engine outside in a snow flurry? Will the EPA shut them down before they can finish? And what happens when you let a carsick dog ride shotgun?
